Vail Daily letter: Another great year
September 11, 2013
Wow — another great rummage sale put on by the Eagle Valley Community Fund the third and fourth weekends of August! Approximately 3,000 folks attended the first day of the sale to get the best of all the goodies available, and there were plenty. Hopefully you were able to get up there at Maloit Park and find the perfect item you wanted. About 16,000 hours were put in by volunteers to sort, organize and get the items priced and ready to go. Over 70 nonprofit groups/organizations will benefit from the monies raised — close to $185,000. We thank you all for participating in this great event.
At the entrance of the sale is “Sue’s Cafe,” offering donuts, baked goods, coffee, lemonade and iced tea, giving you energy to do your buying. We have so many sponsors we’d like to send thanks to, and they’ve been doing it for years. We really appreciate them: Dietz Management, Bob and Helen Fritch, Fred Otto, Wells Fargo Bank, Swallow Oil, Eagle Valley Enterprise, Bruce Allen, Castle Peak Veterinary Services, Gallegos Masonry, Team Black Bear Real Estate, Charlie Wick (Edward Jones), Oran Palmateer, Warner Developments, Segerberg Mayhew Arch, Wolcott Yacht Club and J&K Inc (Jim Kunkel). Baked goods, and they were delicious, came from Blue Moose in Beaver Creek, Bonjour Bakery, Columbine Market, Turntable Resturant and Bella’s Market.
Stores that gave donations included City Market, Safeway, Village Market, Costco and WalMart.
All of the above deserve so many thanks, so put your hands together and give them a clap, they are wonderful!
